Title

Leaflet : Woman suffragists' weakness. April 11, 1896. [Circa 1896-1900]

Description

Letter to the editor of the New York Times by author identified only as "A.P.P." The author argues against granting New York suffragists the oppotunity to present a bill allowing the "present voting population of the State to vote upon the question of woman suffrage." He or she cites a statistic attributed to Carrie Chapman Catt's husband, George Catt, that there are only 1,600 organized suffragists total out of a white population of 6,000,000.

The letter was most likely reprinted by the Albany Anti-Suffrage Association, more formally referred to as the Women's Anti-Suffrage Association of the Third Judicial District of the State of New York.
